Tegan (pronounced like Megan) first heard about Coram Deo Academy when she and her family attended services at Christ Orthodox Presbyterian Church in Flower Mound. She was very interested in the school because of the uniqueness of the University Model, integrated with a Classical education and the collaborative nature of the school, where parents are their student’s primary educators.
Mrs. Thacker was born and raised in San Diego, California. She has been married for almost 16 years to her husband Matthew. They have two boys, Levi (8) and Jude (6). Mr. and Mrs. Thacker share a common interest in music since they both studied it in college. Tegan holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music from Hope International University and a Master of Science degree in College Student Affairs and School Counseling from California State University. Matt is an Alum of Biola University and is a Band Teacher.
Over the last 15 years, Tegan has been working with college and high school students in various school settings for many years. She has worked with college students at Vanguard University of Southern California, California State University in Bakersfield, Concordia University in Irvine, and Hope International University. She has also worked as a High School Counselor in various school districts in the Orange County, CA area.
When meeting with students and families, her goal is to get to know the student and work to reduce the common stressors within career exploration and college admissions by providing solid and accurate information and by walking families through the process, in small groups and in individual sessions.
Some areas of personal interest to Tegan are health and nutrition, college admission, and she loves cooking and trying new foods. Tegan is an extrovert and enjoys meeting new people, building relationships and learning the perspective of others.
Tegan and Matt have serve in their church choir and assist with teaching Sunday school.
